Vivian Maier, In Her Own Hands

Throughout the month of October I will be featuring articles and links brought to you by Getty Images. Working at Getty Images, I am fortunate to be regularly exposed to the best in world photography, both past and present and the cutting edge of the visual dialogue that frames our lives. I hope you enjoy.

Vivian Maier, In Her Own Hands

Vivian Maier (1926-2009) worked as a governess for more than four decades as of the beginning of the 1950s. Her entire life went inevitably unnoticed, until her photographic corpus was discovered recently (in 2007): a colossal work consisting of more than 120,000 negatives, super 8mm and 16mm films, various recordings, miscellaneous photographs, and a multitude of undeveloped films.
